Reinvent Albany joins letter calling on Legislature to Hold Public Hearing on Redistricting Maps


With the Independent Redistricting Commission failing to provide a second set of maps to the Legislature, Reinvent Albany joined the League of Women Voters of NYS and Citizens Union on a letter to the legislative leaders on the redistricting process. The letter calls for a public hearing on the Legislature’s proposed amendments to the redistricting maps for state legislature and congress. Further, the letter asks the Legislature to publicly release the amended plan as well as the underlying data as soon as possible after it is proposed. That release should be followed by a period during which the public can review the proposed districts before any vote.
